Sales enquiries

The brass scabbard indicates this sword was for a senior / staff officer (Adjutant) of the British infantry.

The 32 1/4 inch blade has good tablet etching still visible; it also has quite a few nicks to the cutting edge (maybe period, as there is age to some visible). Blade firm in hilt. The hilt good, a little distortion (not much) with the folding guard section working. Fishskin and twisted grip wire bindings good for age. The brass scabbard mostly good but has lost a throat screw, so the throat is loose. The scabbard has also lost its internal wood slats, so the sword does sheath and draw loosely.

Above average and just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number R31 (0502). Further / large images available upon request.
